Parental Involvement in a Child’s Education

 

Facts about a child's educational development:

 

  • School age children spend roughly 70% of their waking hours (including weekends & holidays) outside of the classroom. The majority of this time is with family and should be academically stimulating as well as nurturing.

  • The earlier a parent engages in a child’s education the better the results will become. Read to them early, have books and education toys readily available, utilize available early childhood education programs, enroll your child in age appropriate activities and organizations, volunteer to help with their activities.

  • The most effective form of engagement is working directly with your child on learning activities at home. Examples include: reading together, completing homework together, providing stimulating conversations and experiences.

  • Set high academic expectation for your child and constantly remind them of your expectations. This practice is a consistent predictor of a child’s success level.
